Big Box Expansion for GW's Skirmish Game
Posted by William Niebling on September 10, 2018 @ 4:38 pm CT
The Rogue Trader expansion brings the iconic independent heroes of the Warhammer 40,000 Universe to the Kill Team battlefield. Equipped with partial immunity to Imperial law, the explorers and merchants known as Rogue Traders are often the first humans to encounter alien races, making them a natural fit for the small team format of Kill Team.
The expansion combines elements of the two main types of expansions Games Workshop has previously released for the Kill Team line, with both a Killzone and two new Kill Team factions included in the box:
The two new factions in the set are the Rogue Trader band known as the Elucidian Starstriders and the horrific mutants of the Gellerpox Infected. Each faction is introduced with its own Codex, and are featured in a multi-scenario campaign that players can play through in the game. Miniatures for both factions are included, which players can use to play the campaign or use in any Kill Team game.

Kill Team: Rogue Trader will include 1 double-sided game board, 33 unpainted and unassembled plastic miniatures representing 10 Elucidian Starstriders and 23 Gellerpox Infected, plastic scenery models, 2 Codex books, a 56-page booklet with background on the Rogue Traders, new rules for Kill Team, and the campaign scenarios, and the tokens needed for play. MSRP is $130.00. As an expansion, a copy of the Kill Team rulebook is required to play.
Two sets of custom dice, with icons and colors designed to match the two factions, will also be offered. Each dice set includes six 6-sided dice and two 10-sided dice. MSRP is $12.50 per set.
GW is also offering the Rogue Trader Collection, which includes a copy of the Rogue Trader expansion and a set of Elucidian Starstrider dice at an MSRP of $142.50.
